Re: The Truth About Reggie

Payton also mentioned that in discussions with RB Reggie Bush, he expects Bush to be a regular in this year’s program. Last season Bush split time between his West Coast home and New Orleans. News that evidently pleased Payton, “He (Reggie) is planning on being involved in all of our off-season, which is good and encouraging. I think it’s important for him and for all running backs, with the pounding they take, to be real diligent in the weight room.”

Check out the second vid and tell me if you think reggie was a good idea. Hell yea he was, hes not just a back or reciever or a decoy. Hes everything, all the above. Just an all around offensive weapon!!!

Re: The Truth About Reggie

i feel we do not have the power blocking off.line to properly use bush.
with true power blockers,it would be much easier for him to get loose.
the line blocking had a lot to do with marshall faulk's sucess with st. louis.
we have good pass blockers but not much in run blocking

You are totally on to something here. The O-line I feel is very suspect. If it wasn't for Brees, quick release and smarts I think that O-line would be horrible.

Faine missed to many damn blocks on running plays causing Reggie to get blown up. But Faine is gone... YEAH!

Re: The Truth About Reggie

Okay Euph - I'm with you on all points. Let me be more clear in that I feel Reggie was thrown into a situation he wasn't ready/meant for:FEATURE BACK.

If it was just that, I would be very optimistic about Reggie. Reggie is also missing something that most RB's have, and that's a little 6th sense that tells him when to duck. When Dunn was about to go down, he would duck and squirt forward and maximize his run without heavy contact. Reggie does that at times, but far too many times his run ends by a direct hit that puts him on his back. Size doesn't matter when you get hit squarely. Whether you weigh 180 or 280, it will end your career sooner rather than later. Reggie needs to learn to finish his runs before he gets killed.

You guys have brought up some great points. I'm glad to see that most of you are with me and haven't given up on Reggie yet. Thanks for the feedback, now I'll use some of the points ya'll brought up and use them as my own to crush local Reggie haters.

I agree with you as well "MENT". He never was a feature back and why should anyone just assume he will be. We got what we drafted a role player who can go in the game and try and make a difference at a particular position at a given time thats it.

I also thing he will bet better with a dominant line.
